If you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will need to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present domain registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can get it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Some registrar companies refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through our company and you have a website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is very easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different admin panels, as you can manage all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains the moment you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email, so in case the one that you specified at first isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with a few clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP logo next to your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the owner of the domain can receive this info. In case the current address isn’t valid, you can modify it with several mouse clicks without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the respective domain right away.
